Doug used these on his Shovel I think.
That would work well for the front but it is too narrow for the rear. I need something 150 wide. i'd use it as a "get me home" tire but don't think I would like to start a 10,000 mile trip with that on the rear.

Thanks anyway.

That tire looks sweet. I want... but need a 140 for the rear.



and congratulations for a safe finish to another trip and thanks for letting us snoop along, Doug.

Hey Doug
Glad you made it home safe. Nice cop bike.
Kinda like my 82 goldwing. Nice bike but I'm not sure what I want to do with it.

Doug, I have to say after looking at the pic posted by rockydog that that cop bike really fits with you. Just like The Dirtster and other preceding it - it's just you.

AL troopers hiring by any chance?

Well done Doug. Do you find cars slow down as you ride up behind them on the kawak?

A previous post indicated a certain false advertising aspect to the naming of towns out there. Were there any Owy's in Owyhee?

my favorite line

"he scampered through Maryland and Pennsylvania to make to the start in time. "

this bike has never 'scampered' as long as I have had it.......
